Local superannuation fund Rest has announced the appointment of a new head of Australian equities.
Chris Drew will join the fund next month from Australian Catholic Super Fund where he worked as investment manager – public markets since July 2015.
Mr Drew, who will be based in Rest’s Sydney office, will oversee the company’s Australian equities asset class.

“Chris has more than a decade’s experience in managing equities portfolios on behalf of members.
“Australian equities is one of our largest asset classes and is a key driver in delivering strong and competitive returns for members. Chris’s experience and expertise will be valuable as we position for further growth.”
